I am excited that OpenAjax Alliance is officially open now. Over the last
months months, we have worked very hard and have made some incredible
progress, depsite the heterogeneous nature of many different members
representing different viewpoints. One person that definitely deserves credit

What does the Ajax community want from future browsers? How are these
different requests prioritized? Web developers have done amazing things with
Ajax for both Web 1.0 and Web 2.0 applications, but what barriers need to be
